Yes, that's the one! I've been racking my brain trying to remember the name of that classy little joint. Looked up the present-day tenant, but it's not the kind of place that I would want to visit. You're right, maybe it was 55 West's construction that caused it to close... downtown went through quite a transformation during that time.

Ybor's, Rok Room, it was one other thing too.

I mean, they’re not wrong. That building is fugly. Going I-4 eastbound right before downtown, the building is prominent and looks hideous. Looks terrible 408 eastbound as well. Looks better both opposite directions however.

I don’t know if it’s ugly but it does look photoshopped in even in real life when coming in on the highway.  Just different and new and clean.

We will probably be able to tell a whole lot better in 7-10 years after an additional phase and construction around it if this was good or not. 

I like the aesthetic, but dislike the proportions  with the chunky base and lack of height.

However, this could be on purpose to scale up to Phase II and other surrounding properties.

I honestly don't see the fuss.  It's not great.  It's not the worst thing ever.  It's just a bit different.

Like green goddess salad dressing...

A friend of mine from Atlanta was visiting today. As we walked around downtown, I told him about the nicknames for the towers like the Refrigerator and the Copper Whopper.

When he saw CSP1, he said it should be called “the Hodge-Podge”. I like that.

Nothing new to report, just a rendering from B&B showing phase 2. This may have been posted previously.

Why must they make it fat? Keeping it the same height and slimming it makes it look to much taller.

They need the square footage.

If they slimmed it, they'd have to go up to make up the difference.

Something we'd all like to see, but which might not fit their needs.

It looks fine to me. I actually like it. I’m hoping it looks like that when they build it.

It doesn't look bad, but from the angle in the above pic, it looks like an uncured clay model that was lifted up then plopped straight down, causing the bottom to compress and squish outward.
